Go on and laugh if you want!!
This may come as a shock to some of you (or perhaps not!), but I am absolutely hooked on TLC’s newest hit, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which just recently finished its first season on air.
To be honest, I never intended on watching such a train wreck of a show. However, after a relentless bombardment of all things Honey Boo Boo on television, radio and the internet, I simply had to tune in for at least one episode. Soon afterwards, one episode turned into two, then three, etc…and the rest is history.
For those who have not yet seen the show, it revolves around a family in rural Georgia. Alana, or Honey Boo Boo as her family calls her, is a child of about 5 or 6 years old. She travels throughout the region on the pageant circuit, scooping up award after award for her sassy style on stage and electric persona. For such a young girl, she really knows how to ham it up for the judges and cameras
In addition to the antics of this young girl, you also get a glimpse of the rest of her family: Mama, Sugar Bear (Dad) and three other daughters (Pumpkin, Chicadee and Chubbs)…you read that right! Additionally, the oldest daughter just had a baby (Kaitlyn) who happened to be born with two thumbs on her right hand. This is one interesting family!
Now, while I do get a steady stream of laughs from watching this family (one of their favorite pastimes is wearing a blindfold, smelling each other’s breath and trying to guess whose it is), I will give them props for one thing that many families in America today lack: a true desire to spend time together. These girls (and one guy) want nothing more than to spend time with one another having fun and cracking jokes. We may thing that the joke is on them as we explore every part of their family machinery, but the Honey Boo Boo clan truly is having the last laugh as they rake in the dough!
